Claude Carrière (March 14, 1939 – February 20, 2021) … his Facebook page has become the place to learn about the producer, scholar, pianist, President of La Maison du Duke … a Parisian who loved New York as well, he took me to lunch in his Charonne neighborhood and explained terroir … I am so grateful for the friendship. A small funeral will be held.

I last saw Claude in fall 2019 at the Harlem à Limoges conference. He was radio colleague and a friend. I saw him in Paris too, broadcasting live on France Musique from Sunset/Sunside. I have wonderful CDs that he produced, each package is beautiful and clever. What follows is my blog post from last March, when we were becoming acquainted with isolation.
